A good starting point is to meter from the sky without the sun in the frame and then underexpose by two stops...but you will need to bracket your exposures until you find what works best. Don't worry too much if the foreground is in shadow, you can bring this up in post processing afterwards.

The choice of lens is dpendant upon the composition you want.

Many thanks, you mention not to worry about the foreground in the shadow.. if Im wanting to be in the picture as well... wont I need a flash else Ill come up grainy post production?
